Jessica stepped by this morning (Jun 26) on Today Show, to talk about Woman Walks Ahead. She also spoke with Hoda Kotb about how she spoke up on behalf of fellow actress Octavia Spencer to help her get five times her pay for an upcoming film they’re in together. “I assumed a woman like Octavia Spencer would be compensated fairly for the work she’s done, for the awards she’s received.”

Jessica talked to Indiewire today about It: Chapter Two. Read the full article below:
It was the kind of casting that seems preordained: When Jessica Chastain was officially tapped in February to play the adult Beverly Marsh in the much-anticipated horror sequel “It: Chapter Two,” the news came only after months of fans dream casting the redhead for the role, drumming up enough chatter that Chastain herself happily admitted to wanting the role in November of last year. The chance to take on the part of grown up Beverly (played by Sophia Lillis in the 2017 horror hit) also appealed to Chastain because it would reunite her with two of her favorite collaborators: director Andy Muschietti and his producer sister Barbara Muschietti. But that wasn’t the only element that spoke to her.
Like plenty of other genre fans, Chastain grew up reading Stephen King’s books and watching the movies they inspired, even if she was perhaps a smidge too young to dip into his brand of terror.
“Oh, yeah. I remember reading ‘Pet Sematary,’” Chastain said in a recent interview with IndieWire. “Ohhh, I was so young when I read that book, and I got so scared. And I watched that movie so many times. I read ‘The Shining.’ I really like his writing.”
Jessica visited last night the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, to promote Woman Walks Ahead. Jessica recently celebrated one year of her wedding with Gian Luca and on this interview, she tested the censors with some dirty Italian words and gestures she picked up from her husband. Check the video added in our archive, and screen captures in our gallery.

Production is now underway on Andy Muschietti’s IT: Chapter 2, which will re-team the director and his Mama star, Jessica Chastain. The actress is playing the adult Beverly Marsh in the sequel, the Losers’ Club character played by Sophia Lillis in the first film.
Over on Instagram, Chastain showed off an image of her new “summer cut” for the filming of IT: Chapter 2, adding the hashtag “WinterFire” in the caption!
The cast also includes Bill Hader as Richie, James McAvoy as Bill, James Ransone as Eddie, Andy Bean as Stanley, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike and Jay Ryan as Ben. Bill Skarsgård returns as Pennywise and Xavier Dolan was just announced to have joined the cast. He will play Adrian Mellon, a gay man living in Derry who is attacked by bullies and killed by Pennywise.
Next year’s movie takes place 27 years after the first installment, with flashbacks to the ’80s. As adults, the Losers’ Club will resume their battle with the evil Pennywise.
The sequel will arrive in theaters on September 6, 2019.
Jessica attended the launch of Piaget‘s new jewelry collection on Monday night (June 18) at Palais D’iena in Paris, France. She was joined by her Grandmother Marilyn, as you can see in the pictures just added in our gallery.
Earlier this month The Hollywood Reporter presented a great cover interview with Jessica, to talk about gender equality and how she became a powerful force for change in Hollywood and beyond.
These public acts of feminism have become a natural extension of the way Chastain conducts business, which in turn has raised her profile in New Hollywood to heights beyond what even her two Oscar nominations and more than $1 billion in career box office would suggest. In 2016, she founded the women-led (by Chastain and former Weinstein Co. producer Kelly Carmichael) Freckle Films, which has garnered attention for a commitment to equal pay — and a series of high-profile sales, most recently the international spy thriller 355. In addition to spearheading the project — doing research that showed women-led ensemble films perform better than male-led ones, noticing the dearth of female spy thrillers, recruiting director Simon Kinberg and writer Theresa Rebeck — it was Chastain’s idea, confirms Kinberg, for the film’s stars to be paid equally in a deal orchestrated by CAA. “We independently financed it,” Chastain says. “And all five of the actresses” — Chastain, Penelope Cruz, Fan Bingbing, Lupita Nyong’o and Marion Cotillard — “own equity in the film. I love the idea about creating this movie and seeing that these women aren’t just people for hire.” She says she was motivated by the way the industry previously treated leading women. “Like Susan Sarandon or Jessica Lange or Sissy Spacek. You wonder: These incredible actresses, where are they now? Why did they disappear for so long? It was a system that wasn’t working. And so I thought, ‘Well, what if we now take the power and give it to the actresses?’”
